What It Is: 10/20/08

What I’m reading: Samaritan, by Richard Price.

What I’m listening to: My new iPod, because my old one blew up after only 2 years of use: grr!

What I’m watching: Forgetting Sarah Marshall and the first episode of Mad Men. Observations: Mila Kunis is adorable, and Mad Men fell a bit flat/heavy-handed/eh after our experience with The Wire. I have a feeling that a lot of TV is going to fall into the same category after that series.

What I’m drinking: Ristow Cabernet Sauvignon 2000 on Saturday night and Sunday night. I’m up to two  drinks a week, but I still haven’t had a G&T since 9/26, partly because I’m too lazy to pick up limes & tonic at the supermarket.

What Rufus is up to: His first Sunday morning greyhound hike in Wawayanda State Park! Check out the pix!

Where I’m going: No plans, but we’ll likely go back to the park on Sunday.

What I’m happy about: The Red Sox lost game 7!!!

What I’m sad about: That my jury duty number for today turned out to be past the cutoff, so I don’t get to spring my “I can SMELL guilt!” line.

What I’m pondering: Whether I can go into a medically-induced coma to skip the next 2 weeks of electioneering.
